How many positive integers are there whose digits strictly increase from left to right?
(For example, 28, 13589, and  4 are all such integers. "Strictly" means no two digits can be equal, so 15668 wouldn't count.)

But what is the upper limit? up to 10,000, 100,000, 1,000,000......etc.

e.g. 

How many ways can 5 digits can be chosen from 9

9C5 = 126

Each of these will have only 1 number in the order needed.

So that is 126 in 5 digit numbers

 

Do 1 digit numbers and/or 0 count? 

there are 10 of those.

 ------

 

1 digit numbers 10  (includes 0)

2 digit numbers  9C2 = 36

3 digit numbers  9C3 =84

4 digit numbers 9C4=126

5 digit number 9C5 = 126

6 digit numbers 9C6=84

7 digit numbers 9C7=36

8 digit numbers 9C8=9

9 digit numbers = 1

 

10+36+84+126+126+84+36+9+1 = 512 ways
